PUT_MANY or PATH_MANY seems to be used when multiple objects updated with the same data. Is it possible to bulk update or delete objects?

Would this allow filters for selecting which instances to delete as well? I'm not sure if deleting an entire collection of instances is a desirable feature.

I'm currently trying to do this, without much luck. Does anyone know how this could be implemented?

this is very usable, for example checkboxes on frontend and then modal Delete Yes/No next one request to the API to delete selected set of items.

Allow bulk deletion of model instances.
Introduces the `allow_delete_many` keyword argument to
`APIManager.create_api`, which indicates that requests to, for example,
`DELETE /api/person`, with optional search parameters in the `q` query
parameter, will bulk delete multiple instances of the Person model. This
mirrors the `allow_patch_many` behavior that already existed.

This fixes issue #237.
